8:01 pm
we were back and forth e-mails, because she suggested we look for a cleaner together so it will be cheaper, a person who comes a few hours to her mom and a few hours to my home, so most of the e-mails were in march, but most of them were two or three each month. that means we see each other every saturday, but it was not that i was visiting her. in december common after she held ross with money, i remember to say, we should start to be nicer, because they look like now they are trying to be with us. she was calling a lot of time, and i have a lot of calls from her, and i did not answer.
8:02 pm
it is not like we were talking every day or once a week. it is likewise per month. -- it is about twice per month. >> i am not asking about e- mails. you met with ivory from time to time and discussed with her problems you were having in your relationship with ross? >> the only problems are shared were the problems in the e- mails. the only information i shared with her. >> you said maybe it is two or three times a month? >> yes. >> in any of those occasions when you were sharing those problems, did you tell her you were sharing them with her because she was an attorney? >> no.

8:05 pm
that kind of thing. >> you never had more than a 40 minute conversation with ms. haynes, and in that conversation, did you describe what had happened on december 31? >> yes. >> what if any response did she give to you when you told her those facts? >> what was her response to? >> what did she say in response? >> she was asking more questions, and she was explaining domestic violence is a lot of things, so to know you are in a domestic violence situation implied a lot of different things, so just one isolated thing, maybe it is not.
8:06 pm
however, that does not mean it is right. it is wrong, and you need to be very serious and take this very serious, and we need to take ross to counseling, because he has to realize this is wrong. >> of the end of that conversation, did you ask her to do anything to assist you? >> if i asked her for assistance gunma? >> yes. >> no, i asked her about being private or public. then she called me again and said, that is public. goross is a sheriff, so maybe we need something private to help with privacy, and she called me

8:16 pm
nette. >> why it did you say, and do not write any other thing? >> at this point i was on skype with my brother, and he said, close the facebook page, because after this, you do not know what people can write or say. do not talk about anything. do not write anything, and he never answers the phone, and he connects through text messages. i said, do not write anything. clearly he did not follow my advice. >> do you think your conversation with your brother was before you send this
8:17 pm

>> ok, we are back in session.
8:29 pm
the next thing on the agenda is the objections to be testimony. mr. kobb, we be making those? >> yes, and there is an overarching declaration, we see this as a tangential evidence as far as expert testimony. there is a specific objection. this is an undue consumption of time for everybody and a waste of resources, and if this i transcript of testimony is admitted, it will likely necessitate us offering at least one additional declaration from a witness that we had not thought that we would need as part of the record. so
